Hey Atlanta Falcons fans... you might recognize this groom. As for the rest of us, we're going to be focused on the lush wedding on hand. It's everything fabulous should be, and there's even a rolly puppy as a cherry on top of this ridiculously pretty cake. Alisha + Brook Photographers did a phenomenal job, as they always do, capturing a night that was gorgeous as could be in every last photograph.

From the photographers ... The couple, Edwina Marie Inocencio and Thomas DeCoud, were married May 19, 2012. The wedding was very glamorous with red carpet, extraordinary lighting, stylish furniture and feathers. The wedding inspiration came from their black, white and red shoes. Hers were Christian Louboutin, and his were custom Nike Air Jordans, which he had printed on the back on one shoe,"She's," and on the other,"Mine." They had his and her cakes where each of their shoes were recreated on top of each cake. There were his and her signature drinks served at the wedding. Towards the end of the evening, outside of the hotel beside the red carpeted sidewalk, late night snacks awaited guests with a burger truck and hot dog stand. But I think one of the most unusual and unique things was that they had at the wedding was that the bride and groom had purchased a white baby grand piano to have guests sign with sharpies- so they could put it there home to display and treasure!

From the planner ... It was love at first sight when they first met and fell in love as high school sweethearts. And in the years that followed, the flame still burns, knowing that the honeymoon will last forever. She is an accomplished Choreographer who danced her way to his heart; and he, a Safety for the NFL's Atlanta Falcons who scored a touchdown! Both have been inseparable from the start, and now they've tied the knot last May 19th - 19, or rather, XIX. A very sentimental number to both of them - his birthday on March 19th, hers on April 19th, and their Wedding Day on May 19th. The Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley, California was the site of what was a surefire extravaganza that was nothing less than fabulous. Hollywood Vintage Glam was the theme, replete with vivacious colors of red, black & white embellished with ostrich feathers, luscious florals and bling from Asiel Design. The room was flanked with lounge vignettes in an ambiance of luxury provided by Classic Party Rentals, and enveloped with sexy hot splashes of vibrant lighting decor created by Atmosphere Lighting, Exquisite to details in wedding planning and event design was executed with flawless sophistication and panache by Duncan Reyes of F. Duncan Reyes Events By Design.
